    Well, freakparade, you can find it on this site also. But we are talking about the paperback version.

    Here's a link to a site that sells each book in Japanese. Sorry if I couldn't find any of them in any other language. I hope I've been some help to this thread.

    This is actually quite strange. Gantz is one incredibly popular manga...

    maybe it is because of the R-rating or something... kids who read Gantz probably would become like psycho.

    I can understand that Gantz being a very violent and all around graphic manga is something that makes it harder for the general American population to be okay with, but that's no reason it shouldn't already be liscensed. Battle Royale is another very violent and graphic manga in my opinion and that's released by TokyoPop. Sure, not every chapter of Battle Royale starts off with nudity, like *most* of Gantz's, but there's a lot of harsh images there as well.

    All in all, there's really gotta be some other complex reason for it not being liscensed already because the violence and nudity shouldn't be that big of a deal.

    If mangas like Battle Royale, and Berserk can be released, I don't see a reason why Gantz couldn't be. Heck, you can buy the uncut DVDs of the anime at Walmart even. I agree that there has to be some complex reason why it hasn't been picked up yet.

    A complex reason like "the publishers think they can make more money using the printing capacity on something else"? That kind of complex reason?

    In Spain volume 14 was released a few months ago, I think 15 will be out soon, or was just released. I thougth Gantz would have been translated to english far before the spanish one... that's quite strange

    Someone just said that the mangas are offically being translated in french. Anyone knows what is the last volume that has been released?

    Yeah, perhaps the only reason why nobody has liscensed it is because they're afraid it'll flop in America. I don't know why they'd believe that though... if it's popular enough to have its own anime (albeit a crappy one) it should still be able to do well. I would love to actually OWN the Gantz manga volumes.
